A couple of weeks ago, I bought a new printer. I decided not to buy the most basic, El-Cheapo one because the time I did that it lasted a couple of weeks and poof! Broken. So this time, I bought a middle of the road one and paid (on sale) $129.99.
Low and behold I get this little printer home, go to set it up and -- hello! There's no printer cord. I spent $129 (plus 8% tax) to buy this sucker, and I can't use it until I go back to the store to buy a cord to hook it up to my computer.
Holy smoke--The prices were ridiculous! It was $34 for a six foot cord. I went for the three foot cord thinking that since the printer was going to be right next to the computer that it would do. And it does--just barely. The cost? $24.99 plus tax.
That meant my $130 printer was really $155. Grrrrrr!
And what has some cheapskate company gypped you out of lately?
